After postponing our original 2020 wedding date, we found that picking up the planning nearly a year later left us feeling overwhelmed. As a project manager by profession, living outside of the state I would be getting married in, etc., I knew bringing in a professional wedding planner would help to navigate what there was left to do, while leaving room for us to enjoy the decision-making. We were fortunate to have Teresa as our month-of planner. From the beginning her genuine, kind personality proved to ease my concerns, while offering solutions drawn from her impressive portfolio of gorgeous weddings. Her organization and connections within the industry were so helpful while making last-minute decisions in the challenging, uncertain times. When our wedding day came, I felt such a sense of ease knowing that Teresa and her team-- Brooke and Gisele-- would carry through our vision. They were so attentive, which allowed me to be present during the fast-paced, memorable day. It was spectacular, with guests gushing well after the event ended. For that, we're forever grateful.
Where can I even begin? Teresa is an absolute godsend. My (now) husband and I live in NYC and had already set our date and venue when we began looking for planners. I spoke to many different people, and from the first conversation I had with Teresa, I knew she was it. Being from out of state and being the very first couple to get married at a brand new hotel, The Ben in West Palm Beach, we knew our wedding would have many challenges. Our wedding was the most fun and special day of our entire lives and hiring Teresa was a huge part of that. She went far above and beyond her job description in so many different ways, and we are so beyond grateful to have had her in our lives for this special time. I will seriously miss texting with her daily and getting so excited for all of the cool details we were planning for. Simply put, Teresa is incredible and hiring her was the absolute best decision we made!
We hired Teresa three months after we got engaged. She was a godsend! This was especially true when a few months before our wedding we had to unexpectedly switch venues due to management issues at the original venue we booked. Before telling us the bad news, Teresa had called venues nearby to see if they had the same wedding date open and whether they would offer any similar pricing due to our emergency situation. Thankfully, one did and we booked a new venue, which was next door to our original venue. (We ended up falling in love with our new venue so everything happens for a reason!) We are from Chicago so if you're looking for a wedding planner for a destination wedding in Florida, Teresa is your girl. The weeks leading up to the wedding were a breeze and Teresa was always very responsive to our emails/texts/phone calls. As for the actual wedding, the entire weekend ran as smoothly as you could ever wish for, all thanks to Teresa and her team. We highly highly recommend Teresa and Simply Couture Weddings LLC!
I do not even know where to begin...let's just start out with working with Teresa was probably the BEST decision I made to help me with my wedding. Being a major procrastinator and having every single thing possible going on in my life the year leading up to my wedding day, Teresa kept me on top of everything and made the entire process literally stress free - she even got my wedding started FIFTEEN minutes early! Is that even heard of in the history of weddings? Leave it to Teresa to do anything to make your day absolutely amazing! My wedding was absolutely beautiful and went off without any mishaps because of Teresa and her team. She goes above and beyond to make sure all the little details match and makes it come together perfectly. She is so passionate about what she does and becomes a friend in the process! I honestly do not know what I would have done without her because it was the best decision I think I made for my wedding. Thank you so much for everything you did and making my wedding more than I could have ever dreamed of! If I could give you TEN stars, I would! I would recommend Teresa without hesitation to anyone who is planning a wedding.
Words don’t exist to properly describe and give credit to Teresa for how instrumental and amazing she was. If you don’t want to read this whole review take this away: Working with Teresa was the single best decision I made and I’ll be trying to figure out a way to work with her again because I don’t want to lose her. When I first chatted with T, we clicked immediately and I knew that she could see my vision for the wedding, whereas others all seemed to lean towards ideas that were their own. It was like we shared a brain. What’s probably most important for those reading…is that my wedding was executed impeccably. Everything was perfect and it was stunning - we even had the other vendors commenting on how well it was put together. I would recommend Simply Couture Weddings in a heartbeat for any bride. Teresa is much more than a “planner.” She becomes a friend that is passionate about what she does, has a beautiful eye for wedding design, is extremely detail oriented, and has wonderful relationships within the industry culminating in the most amazing events.
From the moment I emailed Teresa to inquire about her services, she was so knowledgeable and willing to help. Being a long distance bride, I was completely new to Florida and did not know where to begin, her willingness to help me without even having committed to her yet showed how genuine her work etiquette was. I knew that when I did decide to commit to her, which was the same day I emailed her, I would have unparalleled service. Although she’s an extremely popular wedding planner, from day one she makes you feel like your wedding is the only wedding she is planning. Her attention to detail, quick responses (I swear there are like 15 of her) and her efforts give you ease and comfort you need during what is sometimes a stressful time planning. Her aesthetics, visual direction, her knowledge of the industry, as well as her connections, will give you the wedding of your dreams. I have never seen a wedding get as many compliments as mine, and I give all the credit to her and her phenomenal assistant, Ashley. She has grown to be someone I value in my life and will continue to have a relationship with. Thank you so much for giving me my dream wedding and making my wedding planning process so smooth sailing.
Teresa was referred to us by a day-of coordinator who was unavailable the date of our wedding, and we're confident it was the best thing that could have ever happened. From our very first communication, we knew we were in the right hands. Teresa brings with her a vast array of knowledge and experience for all things wedding- related, and has incredible attention to detail. The months leading up to your wedding day can be stressful, but Teresa is quite possibly the most helpful and responsive person we worked with. No matter the question, Teresa had an answer for us (and usually within minutes). We retained Simply Couture Weddings for day-of coordination -- it performed that task exceptionally, and went far above and beyond the job description. Because we decided to do a the vendor selections ourselves, Teresa provided us with great recommendations to help make our wedding a success. My final thought is this: it's difficult to buy peace of mind, particularly for your wedding day. But if you want guaranteed excellent service, incomparable responsiveness, and a wonderful experience overall (even in the months leading up to your special day), then hire Simply Couture Weddings. It's the best decision we made.
